DRUM ROLL PLEASE - CLUE NUMBER FIVE!!!!!!!!!
OK, here we go. RECAP
For our first clue you were told to create a 9"x 7" piece of altered fabric. You could stamp, dye, color with crayons, applique, what ever you wanted to do.
Second clue you were told to quilt the altered fabric to a piece of felt or batting using various threads.
Third clue had you carefully cut up the quilted fabric into at least six separate pieces. You were encouraged to be creative by cutting out circles, shapes, waves, etc. After the pieces were cut apart they were to be reassembled into a completely new non-rectangular shape. You were encouraged to play with the shape, and then stitch it back together into ONE WHOLE PIECE with a backing fabric behind it.
Fourth clue had you embellish the piece using stitching, beads, wire, etc.
So, what do you think you are going to do now?
CLUE NUMBER FIVE
You are to FOLD, BEND, TUCK, STRETCH and MOLD your piece of fabric into a THREE DIMENSIONAL VESSEL or VASE.
Be creative, try not to end up with a traditional looking vase. It will happen and that's ok but play with some other options.
Once the fabric has been shaped STITCH the piece into its new three dimensional form.
You now have a unique and fascinating piece of art to use or purely enjoy.
A thank you goes out to Leilani Pierson for publishing this article in Quilting Arts Magazine.
Here's the link to see what the participants have done so far.: http://www.dogintheholestudio.com/2010/04/clue-number-4-picture-day.html
Hint: while shaping my second project I put a small little vase inside and wrapped it around it. I wanted to use my finished shape as a flower holder. I am now on my fifth project and each time I'm tweaked it a little, having more and more fun with the shapes and what I have used and embellished.
I hope you have had fun with this BLIND CHALLENGE. I plan on doing another one in the fall so do keep in touch.
There are two upcoming Down The Rabbit Hole Challenges in the works, stay tuned.
